Week 16, October 13, 2019
SAVE THE DATE!!
On April 24th and 25th next year we will “Connect to the World of Rotary” at our District Conference. It will be held at the World Golf Village in St. Augustine.
Friday afternoon we will have the District Training Assembly, like last year, from noon to five. That’s where Rotarians learn great ideas to prepare them for their roles for the next year.
At 5 o’clock Friday we jump into the Conference, and keep rolling on through Saturday night.
We will celebrate our clubs’ achievements, spark new ideas for the future, and tie it all together with a lot of fun and fellowship.
We are leaving Sunday free you can enjoy the beaches, poke around through the shops, or immerse yourself in the oldest city in the United States.
Put it on your calendar now!
Have a great week!

HURRICANE DORIAN RELIEF—HOW YOU CAN HELP
Situation Report: October 14, 2019
Post-Dorian Long-Term Recovery & Rebuilding Initiatives in The Bahamas
Our District 6970 Disaster Relief Team is in ongoing contact with local Rotarian Leaders and other governmental and humanitarian entities on-the-ground who are performing “long-terms needs assessment” assignments in the Bahamas. It is currently reported that there are still hundreds of people listed as “missing,” and the death toll stands at 60 lives. Property damages are estimated to be in the $7 billion range.
Our 6970 Disaster Relief Team is helping Rotary clubs in the Bahamas with recovery efforts in the hardest hit areas of Grand Bahama Island and Marsh Harbor, Abaco. The Disaster Relief & Recovery Funds collected from Rotarians in District 6970 will be utilized for the purchase and delivery of specialized equipment and supplies that can assist these local Rotarians in their rebuilding activities for certain devastated educational and medical facilities as well as for certain assistance programs for evacuees.
Again, our District Leadership Team along with the Disaster Relief Committee thanks you for your most generous support. So far, our Rotary Family and its friends have contributed approximately $60,000 to the District 6970 York Foundation which is earmarked for the “Hurricane Dorian Relief & Recovery Assistance Programs in the Bahamas.”

District 6970 In Action
President Tom Bryan and District Governor Mike Darragh rededicated the Ascension Health Services — formerly St. Vincent’s Hospital — mobile health unit that marked Rotary’s 100 years of service in Florida. As members and guests of our Rotary Club applauded, Mike and Tom cut the ceremonial ribbon for the re-designed vehicle.
The Five Avenues of Service
Club Service focuses on making clubs strong.
A thriving club is anchored by strong relationships
and an active membership development plan.
Vocational Service calls on every Rotarian to work
with integrity and contribute their expertise to the problems and needs of society.
Community Service encourages every Rotarian
to find ways to improve the quality of life for people in their communities and to serve the public interest.
International Service exemplifies our global reach in promoting peace and understanding. We support this service avenue by sponsoring or volunteering on international projects, seeking partners abroad, and more.
